World Activated Carbon - Industry Market Research, Market Share, Market Size, Sales, Demand Forecast, Market Leaders, Company Profiles, Industry Trends

World demand for activated carbon is projected to rise 8.1 percent per year to 2.1 million metric tons in 2018, driven by tightening pollution regulations and rising manufacturing activity. North America will remain the largest activated carbon market, while the Asia/Pacific region will slightly outpace and overtake North America by 2023.

This study analyzes the global activated carbon industry. It presents historical demand data for 2003, 2008 and 2013, with forecasts for 2018 and 2023 by type (e.g., powdered, granular), application (e.g., water treatment, food and beverage processing, mining, pharmaceutical and medical, industrial air purification, motor vehicle), world region, and for 18 countries.

The study also considers market environment factors, details industry structure, evaluates company market share and profiles 34 industry participants, including Calgon Carbon, Cabot Norit Activated Carbon and MeadWestvaco.
